Adria Gasol, Brother Of Pau & Marc, To Walk-On At UCLA Per Report

Adria Gasol, the younger brother of Pau and Marc Gasol, will be matriculating at UCLA this fall, and according to CBS Sports, will be walking onto the Bruin's basketball team next season as well.

Here is CBS' Gary Parrish with the commentary:

So what does this development mean?

Probably not much in the immediate future because the youngest Gasol isn't really heralded despite the fact that he's 6-foot-10 and, you know, named Gasol. But let me say this: I live in Memphis and once watched a fat kid named Marc Gasol play high school basketball, and, back then, I had no idea I was looking at a future franchise center. Nobody did. So these Gasols can be difficult to project. That's my point.

The 18 year old Adria has already enrolled in summer school classes in Westwood, though has not been practicing with the team as they prepare to head to China. He reportedly has spent time with Spain's U-18 national team, but was not on their roster during the past two European Championships.
